Fallout 4 is getting a new high resolution texture pack and PS4 Pro support. The texture pack weighs in as an additional whopping 58GB download to the base game! I feel sorry for those with metered internet or small SSD drives!

But the real story isn't the texture pack or the 1440p PS4 Pro support. The REAL story is that an AMD RX 490 8GB card is on the suggested card list! The same mystery card that I discovered on Sapphire's website long ago. How can there be this many RX 490 gaffes without hardware existing on some engineer's desk. An I7-5820K is very steep for recommendations also. As of posting this, the RX 490 notation has been removed. So there's that...

Recommended PC Specs

  • Windows 7/8/10 (64-bit OS required)
  • Intel Core i7-5820K or better
  • GTX 1080 8GB/AMD Radeon RX 490 8GB

Worth mentioning is that Fallout 4 is for sale today on Amazon for $20.
